I took this with the 17mm tilt-shift lens on a July morning in 2016. I reprocessed this using a graduated filter instead of dropping the blue luminance to darken the sky. By doing so, I eliminated the fringing that was evident on the lamp post and building roof lines.
Sky darkened by dropping the blue lumosity.
Fringing on lamp post.
The morning after the night before.
I am reworking some images of the past few years using new to me, techniques. I hope they speak to you.
There were a couple of tracks at Del Norte Street (the dock is behind me and to the right). I assume that this was an inbound freight. The railroad was still active in the nineteen-eighties as the timber industry was still a prime engine for the Humboldt economy.

This privately owned P51 Mustang was parked near the abandoned tower at ACV. It was a common visitor for many months. c.1995

Here is another view from the Del Norte Street dock. It looks to me that the ship’s name is Avila, and I assume that it is a tanker. I believe that the two tugs are the Thor, and the Atlas. Part of the Louisiana Pacific complex at Samoa is in the background.
